1. Prevent smudging by using waterproof eyeliners.
2. Always focus on getting the eyeliner to the base of your eyelashes. This not only gives you greater control, but also thickens the eyelashes and makes them look more prominent.
3. Always keep in mind that eye shadow goes on first, followed by eyeliner, and mascara last. This can help prevent unnecessary accidents and botch-ups.
4. With time, you will not need to stretch your eyelids to get an even coat of eyeliner on. However, keep in mind that when you stretch and apply, the line will appear thicker and denser once you release the eyelid.

5. Remember the simple rule, inner corner outwards for the upper eyelid, outer corner inwards for the lower eyelid.
6. Choose colors wisely. While punk and Goth looks suit punks and Goths, the same may not work for you depending on your skin color, your dressing and accessorizing style. Select colors that will complement you, your skin tone, and your eye color. The range of colors available is really wide, so just let yourself go and pick from bronzes, silvers, reds, greens in addition to the more common blacks, blues and browns. 

7. Try out a combination of pencil liners and liquid liners, using the pencil to draw the line and filling it in with the liquid.
8. Fool around with broken lines, smudged corners, and contrasting eye shadows to create a look that might go on to become the next big trend. Let your imagination run wild. You can always remove it if it doesn’t look good to you.
9. Remove eye makeup thoroughly. I use Oriflame’s excellent eye make-up remover, but if you don’t have it, you can consider safe alternatives like petroleum jelly, olive oil, or tear-free baby shampoo.
10. Never share eye makeup or eye makeup tools. Even an apparently innocuous act of sharing eye shadow or a brush can result in transmitting troublesome infections. Make it a principle and never share your eye makeup kit.
